A mix of modern and traditional Italian cuisine, our cozy ristorante has long been a local favorite. Sisters Anna and Maria, originally from the Basilicata region of southern Italy, first opened the doors of Anna Maria Pasteria in 1989.

Beginning at age seven, Anna fell in love with cooking, creating her first plate of Pasta e Fagioli, a simple peasant dish that is now an Italian specialty. Enamored with cuisine and hospitality, Maria followed the family tradition and put her heart into making the best and most heavenly Tiramisu.

After three decades, Anna and her team continue to dedicate themselves to the finest homemade Italian cuisine and service. Each entree is prepared to order with only the finest and freshest ingredients.

The food was absolutely delicious for all three guests, especially the Eggplant Parmesan. It was crisp, chucky and not soggy. They were like eggplant steaks. The Chicken Parmesan was plentiful and the Eight-Finger pasta with chicken was great. However, despite the fact that the restaurant was not busy at that time (4:30ish), the waiter was not cognizant of our needs. We were low on drinks by the time dinner arrived (as we enjoyed appetizers beforehand) and it took us three tries to get the waiter's attention, mostly through the bus boys. A guest was ready to walk to the bar to get a refill on her glass of wine.

It was a cool fun place for late night drinks. Not a lot of food options, but the selection of cocktails and other alcoholic beverages was awesome. I like the vibe of the bar. It offered a lot of creative board games and there are a lot of seat choices, which are all very comfortable for hanging out with friends and even on a date. It offers a relaxing atmosphere in the middle of the city hustle. :)

About the restaurant
Although it's most famous for its electrifying use of chilies and lip-tingling ChengDu peppercorns, the heart of the local cooking style lies in the artful mixing of flavors.

Chengdu cooks excel at combining hot, numbing, sweet, sour, savory, and nutty seasonings to create an astonishing variety of flavors.

Locals like to say, "each dish has its own style; a hundred dishes have a hundred different flavors."

“un-Americanized, small-place street food originated from Szechuan China, awarded as "best heritage restaurant" by Jean Bancheet”

Our Story Begins in Chengdu

"Nearly everything at Da Mao Jia is designed to set your tongue alight with chile heat. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise since the new Bridgeport restaurant specializes in street food from Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan province of China and home to one of the most ferociously spicy cuisines on the planet."

The menu and the waiter said the dish I wanted was VERY spicy. I decided to try it anyway - and it was the perfect amount of spice! Not your usual Chinese restaurant (no chop suey or lo mean) but it's fun to try new things. The tastes were excellent!

I've been to this place before, and I'm liking the new menu! It was nice to have the split bowl with both broths, and the new instant ramen additions were awesome! Can't wait to return for another visit!
